What is on your resume?

Great article on resumes.  I have been saying the same thing for years, now, about the accomplishments.

I have been suggesting that you put your 'accomplishments' section right at the top of the resume, just under your contact info.  Three simple statements, with dollar or percent values, to give the reader a chance to get an idea of your capabilities, in the first critical 10 seconds or so they put into reviewing a resume.

Some examples:

Created and executed $1.5 million advertising campaign for corporate and private banking in North America during expansionary growth period in corporate loan portfolio.

Accounted for $2 billion growth in corporate lending business and improved bottom line through efficient budgeting.

Led $500 million growth in corporate lending business.

These three sentences have plenty of data and dollar information, and gives a potential employer an idea of your qualifications, without supplying 'too much information'…

 

Cheers,
